Episode 63: How to Deal with the Other Woman
This week I’m talking about how to deal with the other woman in your ex or soon-to-be ex’s life. The woman he cheated on you with, or the one he met after you…you know, the one he’s introducing to your kids…?
You have a lot of feelings about this, most of which are perfectly valid, but are you acting on those feelings in the right way? What are the boundaries here? What’s a reasonable request for you to make about all of this?
And how exactly are you supposed to feel about this woman??
In today’s episode, I’m going to share why compassion is so important — compassion for yourself, for your children, and yes, even for her.
If you’re a mom, it’s part of your job to expand your capacity to be with uncomfortable, painful, and conflicting feelings, especially ones you never fucking wanted to have ever at all. Learn how to process them in appropriate ways so you can show up in this new paradigm in the best and healthiest way possible for your kids.
Here are just a few of the topics I touch on in this episode:
Why name-calling, blaming, and shaming aren’t the way to go
How to practice compassion towards the other woman
Dealing with and appreciating the other woman in your child’s life
The Ultimate Divorce Survival Guide
